J.B. and Marie were like adopted parents and grandparents from our first ministry days at Calvary Baptist Church in Jackson. They were just so special in every way. Our whole family is thankful that they had the privilege of knowing them. Many trips back and forth from Clinton to Jefferson City, Missouri. Phone calls kept us in close touch. Your family can be so thankful you had "Bumpsy" for so long. Each one of us will miss her. Thank you Lord for her love and friendship. Long live husband's delight!

I am grateful to God for sending J. B. and Marie across my path in life. They were policyholders of mine as their State Farm agent. J. B. was such an encourager to me and I loved being with Marie. They were both the kind of people that make our country a great place. My husband and I attended First Baptist Church with them and we lived close to them in Clinton. What a great example of those who knew Jesus and it showed in the way they lived.
The created has met the Creator. Praise the Lord.

I will miss Aunt Marie. When I was young I loved visiting with Aunt IB and Aunt Marie and I thought Uncle JB could do anything. Love to Jerry, Terri and Fran, and the rest of her family.
